In his career, Butker has made 38 of 55 field-goal attempts and 197 out of 199 extra-point tries. He has contributed his best season by far this year, making 10 of 12 field-goal tries (an ACC-best 83.3 percent), all 35 PAT’s and is ninth nationally in touchback percentage at a career-best 72.7 percent. Tech is one of 29 FBS schools that hasn’t allowed a kickoff return longer than 39 yards.
Butker is in the company, not surprisingly, of Tech’s greatest kickers. Prior to Saturday, he was tied at 299 with Scott Sisson, who will be forever remembered for his game-winner against then-No. 1 Virginia in 1990. Behind Manget with 321 points is Travis Bell, a two-time All-ACC selection. Manget, a three-time All-ACC choice who beat Georgia in 1999 in overtime, is in the Tech sports hall of fame with Sisson.
